Levfin,

Feel free to PM me if you have any specific questions about the application or interview. I felt that the application was one of the longest I'd come across, but I thoroughly enjoyed writing the essays. (That's a bit nerdy isn't it?)


Very nerdy my friend!! I guess, essay writing can be an enjoyable experience if you take the stress away. I'll send you a PM soon.

Thanks.

Hi guys

I have been following the threads about HEC here and on pagalguy but am posting for the first time. Some really useful nuggets of info.. so I thought i'd jump in and thank you guys for making the journey to b-school entertaining and informative :P I am applying to the Sep intake this year and just got my interview call last week. I see that there's a few of you who've already got in :) Good on you. I'm still going through the motions of apping. Have done 5 apps so far and still working on a few more till I really get something concrete. HEC is my prime choice, so fingers crossed..

You apply through the HEC portal along with the other scholarships and HEC selects the best candidates to present them to the Eiffel scholarship committee.

Hi Eggwhitesonly. I have not heard of any HEC portal for scholarships.. Please let me know where I can find it..

Hi poulomibasu, I sent a mail with required documents for Eiffel Scholarship to HEC on December 28th and they forwarded it to Eiffel.. The deadline for the scholarship was Jan 6th.. Am sorry you missed the deadline.. Also I contacted the Campusfrance and got to know that no other scholarship is currently available for MS Management.. I received the same reply from the admissions office..

The portal is for the accepted MBA students. HEC will email a link to each individual with their unique log-in information for their Etheryl account. The admitted students can apply for all scholarships through the Etheryl portal.

What happened? Did your interviewer say he/she's giving a negative feedback?
Even so, how does WL work at HEC? Haven't seen many WLs around...

He said "not to expect a red carpet from him"
No more friday night interview for me!

No news from HEC yet, I will probably have to wait 5-10 days for their final decision

Well good luck. You may find out sooner than you think. I remember getting my results two days after my actual interview. The Admissions Jury generally meets a day or two after the day by which interviews have to be completed.

At least that's often been the case in the past.

I met a development manager during a fair in Paris 10 days ago. She told me that the jury will meet on Thu 18th..I'm waiting too.

Re: HEC Paris - Sep 2010 intake [#permalink] New post 11 Feb 2010, 03:54
Hi everyone,


I received the interview invitation for september 2010 and I ask myself a pretty common question : what is a "creative and innovative" subject for a 10 minutes presentation. It seems from google that some website give a list of past interview/presentation feedback but unfortunately I cannot open these website from china where I live.

So question for the people who already had the interview what kind of topic did you choose and how were this subject "creative and innovative" ?

I would like to choose a subject related to one of my previous work experience but I think this doesn't sound very "creative" to choose something work related, on the other hand the industry I was working in was a niche market with a very original product (kind of extrem sport and industry related) and I could simply present this product.

Also I guess most of the time people choose subject on which they have available informations and that they know well (at least probably better than the interviewer potentially could) which makes me think that it is hard to not pick a subject related to my own personal path.

Thanks for your feedback,

Jiang

I chose a topic that I had briefly touched upon in my essay. My advice would be to choose a topic that you're familiar with.

I would second cesque's post and also say you should pick something you can be passionate about. You should really want to give this presentation to your interviewers. I chose a work topic, but I was very animated about it, and my interviewers seemed to enjoy the presentation.

(Mine was via phone and the interviewers were sent a copy in advance.)

Hi Guys,
Is it a good idea to ask them the status of my application. I submitted on 2nd Feb.

Also, has anybody started off on the student visa process? How much time does it require?
I am from Asia.
